GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!
Novos, a startup building a training platform for gamers, announced it has raised $6 million in funding. It is building out its platform with the aim of building custom training programs for all types of gamers, from amateurs to esports professionals. MizMaa Ventures led the round, with participation from Remagine Ventures, Gal Ventures, Kaedan Capital and others.
Novos’ training platform is customized for each player based on their in-game performance and strengths. At the time, it has programs for Fortnite and a few other games, with the aim of expanding into more titles.
Applebaum, partner at MizMaa, said in a statement: “There are few industries growing as fast as gaming and the NOVOS team is helping to build the infrastructure that makes that possible. It’s so important to have a methodological way where players can improve in the activity they love, and the team at NOVOS, who are all game practitioners, are the perfect people to build such a product.”
Of Briga, CEO and co-founder of Novos, told GamesBeat in an interview: “Unlike professional sports, the path to improvement (as a gamer) is a mystery. This is why we started Novos…. We give them the best training activities and sessions to complete while having the opportunity to be part of a group of friends, play with other people, train with other people.We all do this in a holistic way.It’s not just about mechanical skills , and it’s not just about watching videos. We encourage gamers to take breaks after long days of gaming. This is Novos in a nutshell.”
